Genova Burns LLC is proud to announce that Kathleen Barnett Einhorn, Partner, was recognized as a top intrapreneur by Leading Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners (LWE). An intrapreneur is a manager within a company who promotes innovative product development and marketing. Einhorn received the honor on Monday, October 21 at the organization’s annual event in Jersey City.
“Kathleen is a trusted confidante to so many women in the legal profession, leading both through example and by dedicating so much time toward mentorship of her female colleagues,” said Angelo Genova, Co-Founder, Managing Partner, and Chairman of Genova Burns LLC. “She empowers women to practice law in a world where the glass ceiling is lifting, and where promotions and leadership positions are possible for any attorney, regardless of their gender.”
For Einhorn, the honor marks the latest recognition she has received in her decorated career. She is the first woman attorney in Genova Burns’ history to serve as an executive committee member and the first to chair a practice group at the Firm. She is the current chair of the Complex Commercial Litigation and Intellectual Property Practice Groups.
“I am very proud of this honor and, by extension, the sense of inspiration my accomplishments may bring to other female legal professionals,” Einhorn said. “I am so grateful that Genova Burns recognizes the importance of a diverse workforce and affords the opportunity for women to advance to leadership positions and partnership roles.”
At Genova Burns, Einhorn also contributes her skills and expertise to a host of other practice groups, including those dealing with Corporate & Business Entity Governance, Ethics & Compliance and Procurement Law, Government Contracts & Bid Protest Litigation, Criminal Defense, Investigations & Compliance Practice, Cannabis Law, Appellate, Class Action Defense, Construction Law & Litigation, Crisis Management, Employment Law & Litigation, Human Resource Counseling & Compliance, Trade Secrets & Non-Competes, Franchise Law, Insurance Law and Mediation & Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice.
Einhorn is experienced in all aspects of litigation, having tried numerous cases and appeals in state and federal courts as well as handling many arbitrations, mediations and other alternative dispute proceedings. She also serves as a mentor to female law associates, guiding women in a profession where men still outnumber women at a ratio of nearly two to one.
